La Ferte-Alais 2009

Where? La Ferté-Alais / Aerodrome de Cerny
When?
31/05 - 01/06/2009

Though the airshow season is not over yet, the event at La Ferté-Alais can surely be rated amongst the top shows of the year. This is not only due to perfect weather, but also due to a perfect mixed of some of the finest flying that you can imagine of aircraft from all eras.

As I also did a bigger report about the event for "Flugzeug Classic", I will leave you alone with more photos and less text of the show.

Though this also meant that nearly all interested visitors had to take a day off, a crowd of around 15.000 came to celebrate that day.
